National American Legion Auxiliary president visits Cheney chapter
Cheney is in for a rare treat as American Legion Auxiliary national president Peggy Thomas pays a visit in early March during a swing through Washington. Thomas will be the guest speaker at a dinner March 8 at Cheney’s American Legion Hall on College Avenue downtown.
Thomas is a 31-year member of the Auxiliary, joining through her late husband U.S. Army veteran John C. Thomas, and is the first president from Virginia since Anna Gear in 1983-1984. A retired vice president of a petroleum distributorship with three divisions, Thomas has held leadership roles at all levels of the Auxiliary.
